Amazing relaxing brilliant hotel

Posted 08-Oct-2017
Pros: Everything
Cons: The rooms could do with a little updating. That is being really picky though as the rooms are great.
Location: Neat the golf course about 10 mins from the beach and the town.
Lovely clean hotel. Amazing friendly happy staff who are professional helpful and genuinely nice people. The food is great the rooms are great the pool is great... you get the idea. It’s a quiet location near the golf course. There is free hotel transport into town day or night. Nothing is too much trouble. I will be going back and I’ve never found a hotel I felt like that about before.

Nice hotel but a bit out of the way

Posted 11-Sep-2017
Enjoyable break in a lovely relaxing hotel. The only downside was that food and drinks in the hotel were very expensive (more so than at comparable properties).

Beautiful hotel, excellent staff.

Posted 23-Aug-2017
Pros: Everything
Cons: I can't think of anything
We arranged the Hotel Pick up from the airport for 70 euros and it was well worth it. Luxury travel and a very personal touch. On arrival the concierge was waiting for us and knew us by name and then we had a personalised check in. We had the interconnecting rooms which were stunning with a view of the pool and every amenity you could want. The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for you. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive from the Marina, if the courtesy shuttle bus is not available it is no hassle to book a taxi usually costing about 10 euros. There is a shop at the hotel which sells water, snacks, trinkets and the staff here were also brilliant. Everyone spoke perfect English. I went with my two grown up sons and we had a brilliant time. The restaurants down the Marina are excellent and plenty of choice. Loved it, loved it. Maybe that is why I've been 5 times now.!!!

Expensive but lovely

Posted 01-Aug-2017
Out of town (golf resort) - 10 minutes in an on-demand shuttle to the sister Tivoli Marina hotel, restaurants and beaches. Friendly staff; can't do enough to make your stay perfect. Large comfortable rooms. Lovely clean pools, including an adult only one. Generally quieter than beachside hotels but great for a relaxing break. Variety of food options - buffets are good; seafood restaurant very nice and a higher end fine dining experience with excellent wine selection.

Anantara success

Posted 25-Jun-2017 on Hotels
Wonderfully hotel with excellent facilities, added to the ease of using courtesy shuttle and relationship with PuroBeach made it a great time! Staff were excellent for the most part, but new staff need to reach the expected standards sooner rather than later.

A hotel all to ourselves!

Posted 13-May-2017 on Hotels
My husband and I spent a week in the Anantara at the beginning of May, Anantara took over the hotel from the 1st April this year and we could not have wished for a more relaxing week. The hotel is in a great location close to the Marina but also easily accessible to other areas e.g. Vale Du Lobo via an Uber :-) The hotel is super clean, the hotel staff cannot do enough for you, and there are lovely touches from the relaxing check in, fruit in the room, flowers on check out, fruit smoothies round the pool, all complementary. The hotel was extremely quiet, as it was early in the season, quite a strange experience having the whole pool to yourself! In terms of Golf the Victoria course was great (and the view from the pool too), the old course was even better. There is also a free shuttle service from the hotel. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough!

Newly refurbished

Posted 06-May-2017
We stayed in the Anantara in an extremely quiet week at the start of May. Starting with the positives, it is newly refurbished throughout, with a great spa, large gym, very helpful and friendly staff, peaceful, has beautiful views and with a great buffet breakfast. It is right next to the Victoria golf course but otherwise not much else. The hotel is a 15 min journey from the marina/town by shuttle bus but it is worth going there (or, at lunch, the golf course opposite) to eat. The couple of negatives for us were the value for money of lunch, dinner and drinks, with prices materially higher than hotels/restaurants of a similar standard nearby. And charges for WiFi of €10-15 a day - annoying! Some of the facilities such as the kids club, adult pool and tennis court weren't yet open but looked like they should be pretty nice once finished.
